The final scene has just about been completed, it’s time for the finishing touches before it’s ready for upload. It looks to be about 9 minutes long (much longer than the original 5 minute cut). It doesn’t, however, feature any dialogue. It is a bit of an experiment really, especially since it’s 9 minutes long.
I’m confident though, and even if it doesn’t go well, I’m over the moon about the trailer. It might even be more spooky than the film! Speaking of trailers, I might well release a second trailer before the film. Seems a bit stupid, but please let me explain why I am so eager to make stuff on here…
I wasn’t going to go ahead with re-making The Escape, but after downloading the trial for some new editing software (Adobe Premiere Pro CS6), I decided to definitely go for it. So, I’ve tried to make as much use of it as possible while I have it, and decide on whether or not I want to buy it. So far, it’s exceeded all expectations and made Final Cut look like utter shit.
Within the 4 or so days of having this editing software, I have managed to make a lot of different things, all of which I will be putting on the DVD copies, and some on here/Youtube/Vimeo. These include the film itself, one or two trailers, interviews, directors commentary, photo gallery, introduction to The Escape and possibly the reversed original trailer, which has a few clues of its own towards the film itself.
It’s safe to say I am very proud with what this software has managed to do, I’ve only ever used Final Cut, and it’s taken me a few days to learn how to use this and enjoy it immensely. Anyway, back to editing for me, I plan to finish the first copy of the film tonight. A second trailer is very likely (I love making trailers on here), and I may well post a photo gallery of stills and pictures from the shoot on here!
If you bothered to read this, then thank you :) You can find a link to my Vimeo account on my blog, and I’ll put a Youtube one there too later on.
